Anybody have any suggestions on what kind of "glue" I should use to secure my new handlebars grips I slipped over the new handwarmer kit that won't interfere or damage that actual heating element(s)???

Brand? Type? How much?

Bought & installed the AC Deluxe Kit last night......never thought about needing adhesive. - DOUGH!

The kit DID however come with a little tube of black.....well.... something. No description provided just a part #

It's a sticky gasket like sylicone substance for the thumb warmer part. (didn't use) I had to fabricate/mod my aftermarket throttle/ thumb assist & heat shrink the whole thing - works! sorry no step-by-step pics....(crappy camera lens)


thanks

If a bike shop isnt close, an auto parts store should have some weatherstrip adhesive. 3M is top notch, and has a black gooey adhesive thats for rubber.

On all my atv's and bikes, first thing I ever do is remove the shatty stock grips! Spend the 30 bucks for the ODI Rouge Lock-on Hanglebar grips. They are blister free, comfy, slightly thicker than stock, and LOCK ON THE BAR! They are the best grips I have ever used, best grip, comfort, and install. give them a try.

The first time I had trouble getting actual grip glue, so I used the weatherstripping cement. 2 years later, it's still holding, and now I just used it on the other machine a week ago.

Thanks all for the input!

I went to 2 places after work today, and found absolutely nothing in terms of adhesive that would work.
So I ended up going back to my AC dealer and buying a tube ($14) that was recomended in the installation instructions. Came home, removed the grips and re-cleaned the services w/rubbing alcohol, and smeared the AC stuff on.

- GOOD STUFF! The grips were set-up in under 15min.

So the kitty is sitting till tomorrrow afternoon when I'll take her out. It's "supposed" to be in the mid 60's w/lite winds and pushing +70F on sunday...and for NOV in ND. that's good!

So if anybody needs adhesive........................I gots lots.

Take for grips and clean up handle bars with a littile sand paper spray a little black spray
paint on the handles and slid grips back on let dry eveyone has some paint sitting
around that way you don't have to buy a tube that will do 50 jobs but will set in the
drawer and go bad

Grip-Lock is great and at 7 bucks a tube you can't go wrong. Try denniskirk.com for grip-lock. It worked great on all 4 of my quads.
